Hard work do pay only when you work smart BUT there are some factors beyond our controls about reaping from that same hard work..

I called it forces.. Forces are beyond our imaginations..

Have you ever had a wonderful plans that everything seems like 100% perfect but after executing the plans, you have entirely different results

Forces are factors beyond our control.. If all dreams come true, na everybody for rich

If hardwork equalled greatness, Barrow pushers, truck pushers, concrete mixers and all manner of labourers would have been the greatest. Greatness depends on one's mindset towards it and the plans in bringing it to reality.

Fvck it.
Hardwork is old school; Smartwork is the new school.

If you still expect your profit to be directly proportional to your sweat, then you're never ready to hit it big.
Wealth works by inverse proportion.

A smart girl in a time like this knows that, buying bleaching cream and butt pad, is the way to go, instead of toiling under the sun everyday looking for a $1-per-day job.

Look at the people you are servicing or selling to.

You cannot be richer than your customer. If your customers are car owners, you will soon own a car. If your customers are trekkers, you will soon lose the car you already have.

Choose your customers wisely..

They are higher than you, they will pull you up.

They are lower than you, they will drag you down.

Facts
affable4:
Great!!!

I take the first point: hardwork isn't physical, but mental.

What we term hardwork here in Nigeria is just acute suffering and gross dehumanization. How can someone decide to push a full car engine in a narrow from Ladipo to a very far distance? Only to claim he is working hard for just a little change.

A doctor who is diligent and attends to his patient and timely too, is hardworking. A trader who tries to innovate and arrange his wares at all times to attract customers, is hardworking. Same goes for all others.

But you farming on plots of land with just hoe and cutlass and pushing bulky goods on a barrow is just total and complete suffering. Little wonder it comes with little returns.

They seemed perfect to you, but they were out of touch with reality.

How many mentors did you consult with your idea, they would have shown you the grey areas that would nullify your expectations. That's the forces beyond you.

Dunno where you got this idea from, but I disagree with the idea that servicing or selling to people who are lower than you means you'll go down too.
That's like saying everyone who patronises an hotel is 'higher' than the owner, or everyone who patronises a beer parlour is higher than the owner, or every one who buys wizkid's music or attends his show is higher than him.
How many of dangote, otedola, or adenuga's customer are higher than them?.

Thanks for sharing

It isn't quite clear what you really define as "hard work"

And don’t you think it takes smart decisions to build successful relationships?

In any case, it must have been hard work for you to put together this piece!

Thanks again




What he meant was it's not just brawn but more of brainwork and cultivating the right relationships with the right people
